The High Price of Hesitation

How Flinching Costs You More Than You Think

Picasso’s $139 million sale reveals unexpected investment opportunity

Just last month, an iconic Picasso painting shattered expectations when it sold for a whopping $139 million at auction. Impressive, considering it was purchased for around $1 million in the late 1960’s. 

But there’s a surprising group of investors also celebrating this sale: 61,000 everyday users of one investment platform. 

Why? Because that platform, called Masterworks, enables anyone to invest in blue-chip paintings by artists like Picasso and Banksy for just a fraction of the cost. When Masterworks sells a painting, investors can get a return. 

This way, not only the billionaires of the world can benefit from the art market.

Men’s Work.

Pretending to be a Navy Seal, Ayahuasca ceremonies, or cold plunges are not required.

Men's work can be walking and talking with your Man Morning crew at 8 AM with some warm beverages.

The Flinch.

The flinch is real. The cost is steep.

You flinch to share appreciations with your wife.

The cost is a growing distance and a weakening bond.

You flinch to prioritize your health and fitness.

The cost is decreased energy, health issues, and a shortened lifespan.

You flinch to be fully present with your kids.

The cost is missed memories and a weakened relationship.

You flinch to spend time with quality men.

The cost is lost support, wisdom, and camaraderie.

You flinch to invest in your personal growth.

The cost is stagnation, unfulfilled potential, and regret.

The flinch keeps us from taking action.

The cost is high.

It affects our relationships, health, and personal growth.

Overcoming the flinch requires Courage, Commitment, and a Choice to prioritize what matters.

All things within your control.

According to research, infrared saunas offer health benefits that include:

  • Improved heart health

  • Fighting off illness

  • Sweating out toxins

  • Improved sleep

  • Burning off calories

  • Soothing sore muscles

  • And more

Unfortunately, infrared saunas can cost thousands of dollars and take up lots of space.

Thankfully, I found a portable infrared sauna “blanket” that doesn’t take up a lot of space or empty the bank account.

I purchased this one as a gift for my wife and we both love using it and the benefits
